Happy Birthday to the Phantom of the Opera

Today is the 24th Anniversary of the Phantom of the Opera at Her Majesty’s Theatre.  October is obviously a good month to open a large scale musical as it was Les Miserables’ 25th Birthday yesterday.

When the show opened in 1986 Michael Crawford played the Phantom with Sarah Brightman as Christine and Steve Barton as Raoul. John Owen-Jones is the next Phantom and is due to join the cast on 1st November.

Crawford is soon to return to London’s West End at the London Palladium playing the Wizard in Andrew Lloyd Webber’s production of The Wizard of Oz.
